Five out of the 13 known miRNAs coming from one family named as sja-miR-2, including family members from miR-2a to miR-2e. [score:1]
Blue: the largest family members of miR-2. Two conserved miRNAs named as bantam and let-7 were found in both S. japonicum and S. mansoni miRNAs. [score:1]

Besides the miR-2 family, another two miRNAs, miR-71 and miR-71b-5p, were also found from one family, which is located on two different scaffolds named as SJC_S000054 and SJC_S000102. [score:1]

Duplication of a gene into an autosome has been recently proposed as a way to escape such conflict (reviewed in [36]), and the mir-71/mir-2 cluster duplication appears to be an example of this. [score:1]
The mir-71/mir-2 microRNA cluster is highly conserved in invertebrates, and it has been shown that this cluster is duplicated in Platyhelminthes [25], [28]. [score:1]
This has led some authors to postulate that the mir-71/mir-2 clusters may be involved in sexual maturation in Schistosoma [25]. [score:1]

Moreover, the four novel miRNAs transcribed principally in male adults, including one miRNA (sha-miR-new_46) encoded on the same scaffold as the mir-71/mir-2 cluster (KL250488.1) with a CPM more than 20-times higher than that in the library derived from adult female worms, suggest male-specific roles for these miRNAs in gene regulation. [score:2]
These results are consistent with reports of a mir-71/mir-2 cluster duplication in S. mansoni [10, 11] and S. japonicum [14, 34] on the female-sex (W) chromosome and on one autosome (chromosome 5), and further support roles in sex-specific traits, sexual differentiation, pairing of adult worms and reproductive processes in schistosomes.

We observed 2 miRNAs (mir-2 and mir-71) expressed in both life cycle stages tested, 7 in adult worms only (mir-4, mir-6, mir-9, mir-32, mir-125, mir-3, mir-5) and 5 in schistosomula only (mir-20, mir-18, mir-22, mir-26, Bantam). [score:3]
